Question, do you want us to post watch and warning statements in the storm threads in the truck stop, or post all the watches and warnings in this subforum?

Well I get *all* the watch/warnings sent to me via email (there's a few every day, sometimes 40+ a day if it's a storm day) so we don't need them all posted, but anything about upcoming severe weather, and weather summaries after a storm even can be posted here.

I was hoping to kind of just put 'the best ones' up here, if that makes any sense. Basically just severe weather watches/warnings, and summaries after they've happened. In this forum. But if there's a specific statement that would fit nicely into a thread that's about a specific storm data going on in the 2010 Storms forum, just put the [ code ] and [ /code ] tags around it (without the spaces in there).


Good question ;)
